Comodo Cybersecurity, a global innovator and developer of cybersecurity solutions and Mission Secure, Inc. (MSi), a leading provider of control system cybersecurity to the U.S. military, oil and gas, and transportation industries, have teamed to develop a solution that integrates information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT)/industrial control systems (ICS) cybersecurity with a unified security operations center (SOC). The solution is designed to deliver effective protection of government and enterprise critical infrastructure against the cyber threats targeting ICS.
Comodo Cybersecurity and MSi will demonstrate the combined solution at HackNYC, a conference dedicated to the cyber protection of critical infrastructure, taking place May 8 to 10 in New York City. The solution combines the data from these two environments to provide 24/7 cyber event and incident management, recovery and remediation in a SOC.
Critical infrastructure sectors — from electricity, oil, gas, and water to transportation, communications and most recently, voting systems — increasingly recognize the risk of cyber threats from actors motivated by geo-political interests, hactivism and/or financial gain. These organizations own extensive IT environments connected to OT/ICS, creating a broad attack surface. As a result, security organizations struggle to close gaps between IT and OT/ICS, which may create opportunities for attackers.
"The new joint approach addresses the very unique challenges facing critical infrastructure. MSi Platform protects from the device, PLC and controller up through the OT network, integrating IT and OT/ICS cyber visibility and endpoint protection in a unified, secure platform," said Ozer Metin, VP of Cybersecurity Solutions, Comodo Cybersecurity. "Comodo Cybersecurity protects on the IT side and, when combined with MSi, closes the gap in these currently siloed environments."
"We are very excited to be working with an innovative and world-renowned IT cyber company like Comodo Cybersecurity to provide end users with a fully managed, secure and integrated solution to monitor and protect both the IT and the OT from cyberattacks," said David Drescher, CEO, Mission Secure, Inc.
